Movie in a minute: Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

IMDB Rating: 6.8

The Gist: The good guy needs to beat the bad guy, **Spoiler Alert** but it's not initially clear who the bad guy is.  At first we think it's the one guy because all the clues point that way, but later we find out it's the other guy.  The other guy turns out to be a real jerk.

My take aways:
1. Don't sweat the big mistakes you make in life, eventually a magical dagger will allow you to reverse time far enough back to correct any major blunders.
2. Some brothers are better than others.
3. When you ask someone to disband a secret army of black magic assassins, do some follow up to make sure they really follow through with your request.

Biggest disappointment: Not a lot of actual Persians in the film. I'm not even sure that they were acting particularly Persian-ish.

Should you watch it? The special effects were ok and I'd say it was decent action.  Probably don't plan your evening around it, but if it's on, give it a shot.
